055: Mental Health Basics: The Benefits of Faith-based Meditation & Mindfulness with Neil Ahlsten

Meditation and mindfulness have been shown to have so many evidence-based benefits for the mind, body and soul that I was excited to dive deeper into this topic on the podcast this week.


In this weeks episode of our “Mental Health Basics Series” we're talking all about The benefits of Faith, Meditation & Mindfulness with special guest Neil Ahlsten, the CEO & co-founder of The Abide App.


While I understand that there can be a diversity of views around the idea of meditation, I believe there is a clear case for the benefits and necessity of meditation & mindfulness and especially healthy, biblical meditation.


So in this episode, we’re talking all about

- Some of the benefits of meditation and mindfulness

- How meditation & faith integrate

- And some simple ways we can begin to practice a more mindful and intentional lifestyle


Neil is the CEO and co-founder of Abide, the #1 Bible meditation and sleep app reaching over 5 million people. Before Abide, Neil worked at Google and launched industry-leading products in ads, Android, and shopping. Neil has 4 kids, including twins adopted from Congo.
